I love everything about Christmas! I'm one of those people that wants to listen to Christmas music before it's even December...although so I don't annoy my husband I do wait until Black Friday to start it up. He's a great guy and I want to keep him. ;)
Growing up we had favorite Christmas music. Of course, back then it was on records. My brother loved the Little Drummer Boy and I loved any song except that. -Typical brother & sister style.
We had other traditions as well, such as baking cookies and leaving them and some milk out for Santa on Christmas Eve. I still bake cookies with my nieces.
We also celebrate on Christmas Eve by gathering with family and friends. We're each allowed to open one gift then. When we were kids my parents would usually choose which present we opened. Now we just pick our own.
My husband and I also have a tradition we started when we got married. We both know how hard it is to think of gifts for each other year after year, so we don't exchange gifts, instead we do one big thing for both of us like taking a trip somewhere or making a major purchase. It really takes the stress out and allows us to do something together.
Do you have a tradition that you still do from your childhood or have you started any new traditions?
